Spowart to plead against Lloyds takeover on C4

Jim Spowart, the founder of Intelligent Finance, and Scottish National Party MSP Alex Neil will call on HBOS shareholders to vote against the planned Lloyds TSB takeover on Channel Four tonight.

The Political Slot will be on Channel Four at 7.30pm on Friday night and Spowart and Neil’s broadcast is in advance of HBOS’ AGM on December 12.

Neil says: “We will reach a wide audience with this broadcast and I hope HBOS shareholders will take note of the points we put across.

“They are going to have a crucial say in the future of tens of thousands of jobs up and down the UK, in Scotland and England. Their votes will have a major impact on the UK and Scottish economies which ever way they vote.”
